The City of Angels – or LA for short – is one of the USA’s most important cities, both economically and culturally. But each area of the city is so different; it’s like arriving somewhere new each time. But, there is something that never changes about LA. Los Angeles has always been a marvellous setting and an inspiration to artists and film-makers alike. L.A.: famous for its colourful vibrancy – and its language stays.
A language stay in Los Angeles offers a huge variety of experiences in both language and culture. Because as well as film greats like Steven Spielberg and George Lucas, the city has become home to immigrants from all over the world which makes it a truly multi-cultural city. Though many dream of old Hollywood glamour, LA is anything but stuck in the past. Here past and present blend together to produce new concepts for living, new ideas and works of art, new ways of thinking and new films. It’s about living in the moment, being right on trend and full of colour – just like life itself. On a language stay in Los Angeles, you’ll really feel the pulse of America: the heartbeat of the cultural capital of the United States of America.

Getting to Los Angeles
Los Angeles can be easily reached by plane. The Los Angeles International Airport, LAX, is around 24 km from the city centre. The transfer into the city centre is no problem, as there are free shuttle busses to take you to stations on the public transport network. And if you want a no-hassle transfer directly from the airport into the centre, there are relatively cheap mini-busses that will take you there. The city itself has plenty of bus services and an underground system.
